Founded over a century ago and headquartered in New York City, the firm represents a wide array of clients – from advertising and marketing agencies of all types and sizes, and major brands and advertisers of products and services to media, technology, financial services and real estate companies, private individuals and non-profits. Widely regarded as the #1 law firm for the marketing communications industry, Davis & Gilbert has practice groups in Advertising, Marketing & Promotions; Benefits & Compensation; Corporate; Digital Media, Technology & Privacy; Entertainment, Media & Sports; Insolvency, Creditors’ Rights & Financial Products; Intellectual Property; Labor & Employment; Litigation; Private Client Services; Real Estate; and Taxation.
We provide our clients with real "value added" legal services based on our expertise and experience. Our clients appreciate the quality and efficiency of what we do, and the advice that allows them to make informed business decisions. We offer the best of both worlds. We combine the resources and expertise of a law firm with the practical and experienced advice that our clients need. We work with business people and internal counsel, and support both in what they do and what they need. We are lawyers who are true counselors and help our clients achieve their business goals.
We are a firm that knows who it is and knows where it is going. In a time of rapid change, clients need lawyers who are focused on the clients' business, not on the law firm's "profit per partner." Davis & Gilbert is unique in its strategic position and in its philosophy, and the direct beneficiaries of both are our clients.
NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL SERVICE
Located in a single office in New York City, we represent clients throughout the United States and internationally. We always seek to understand the business of the people we are advising, from top to bottom, without being intrusive. Because of our knowledge of their industries, we are able to "partner" with our clients while providing them with our legal and business judgment. Moreover, given the size of our firm and the collegial way our partners work together, clients find that they get partner involvement in their matters - and that we can quickly react and assemble a multidisciplinary team of lawyers to help resolve clients' problems.
The firm's leadership in servicing our clients is strongly enhanced by the background of our attorneys, many of whom come to Davis & Gilbert with significant prior professional and educational accomplishments and from other prominent law firms and in-house legal positions. Attorneys in our Advertising, Marketing and Promotions practice group, for example, include a former pharmacist, a doctor and a former computer analyst as well as several partners and associates who worked in the entertainment industry on the creative, business or legal sides.
COMMUNITY OF COLLEAGUES
Davis & Gilbert is a community of colleagues who enjoy practicing law and helping clients achieve their business objectives while anticipating and resolving potential problems before they materialize. Our clients benefit from our firm's culture, experience and knowledge - and our attorneys and staff do so as well. It has often been said that our lawyers and our clients rarely leave Davis & Gilbert because it is an unusually rewarding, reinforcing and humane place to work.
